    I do not understand what you want from me
    Why you bother wasting my time your time
    With idle chit chat and meaningless pleasantries

    Can you define to me what it is that “WE” have
    so much time has past and your still coming
    to me half hearted and half azzed
    Always wanting me to give and please but yet
    what have you really given to me

    Other than a long list of what I have not and will not
    Give to you….come on now
    I know your not a fool

    You see I do not feel the need to give or prove
    anything to you because you have continuously
    showed me that my efforts would be of no use
    I keep trying to tell you
    you can't expect things of someone
    when your not willing to give yourself
    I don’t care how small or big the gesture may be

    I have lost faith in you
    I feel that anything that I ever do for you
    will never matter to you in a good way
    feelings you created

    So don’t get mad at me
    because I do not bow down at your feet
    you have never given me a reason to
    Just like you want me to show you
    I need you to show me too
    You feel you can't count on me
    that's funny because
    I know I can't count on you

    Something I have been asking for
    But I have yet to receive it
    I know how you feel….
    Wanting or asking for something
    That never materializes in the real

    You can save all of your hypothetical philosophical
    Gibberish for someone who wants to hear it
    I have accepted that I will never get
    what I want from you….
    it use to make me sad until I realized
    I was being sad about something
    That was not meant for me to have
    And probably not good for me either

    Things that are meant to be
    happen naturally without begging and pleading
    my desire to give and to please you
    was damaged a long time ago

    You could have repaired it but you didn’t
    instead you chose to concern yourself
    with testosterone laced Bullshid
    your reaction to my actions have
    demonstrated to me it will never be about us
    ALWAYS about YOU

    Since you think your the professional
    on my thoughts and feelings
    how come you never tried or at least
    be willing to meet me half way
    its called compromise...give and take
    you see that's what you do
    when your really genuine and true

    If you would have only given a little
    I would have given the world to you

    and you have the audacity to dispel my feelings as
    Amphigory and nugacity
    and if that’s how you want to kick it
    Cool….
    I gotta chunk the duce
    I wish you happiness and peace
    I’m so tired of this 360 degrees
    of nothing.... poof be gone
    I'm through

    Hard to say goodbye. Sometimes we hold on, thinking, oh it will get better, but it takes two. Love can't blossom with someone who is that selfish. I felt your heart in this. Well written scribe.

    Wow! That was a hard hit Sister 4Everluv! I have to admit I had to chuckle at a few of the lines because it was so real! Sometimes, you just gotta know that everything and everybody ain't good for you!

    Excellent write sistah!!!

    Wow, I'm speechless.... I feel like I've been on the other side of a similar sentiment before in my personal life. It's too bad that relationships can create such negative emotion...I wish you all the best in the future

    Thanks for sharing

    There is nothing worst my king, then a woman that's scorned...When giving just a little, you could have reaped the world...
    For we (Queens) ... are the the entire world!
    Great piece poet, stay on top of the world.
